Help with font upgrading…?
I have tried looking everywhere for a way to upgrade the font uploader… and I'm just about done. Every time I try to use a new downloaded font, Gimp crashes. I have no idea how to update this fontconfig dudad. Could someone please explain…?

That's exactly what I thought. But every time I download a new font and try to use it, it crashes Gimp. It was working fine for weeks until this morning Angry

Don't dismay BaskingBlack, I might have a work around/possible fix for you.

Did you have alot of extra fonts on your system before you installed Gimp?

Since gimp wants to load all the fonts, this could cause the problem.
Maybe cleaning (back up first the fonts on a thumb drive/usb flashdrive)deleting your downloaded fonts from the system font folder.

Test with default fonts
*If the fonts you just deleted still show up in Gimp's font folder, a fresh install of gimp is needed.
Then try to add one font & see if you still get the same problem

I would also take a look here, there are some other fixes (don't recommend the last one on the page) :
